Thrifty Tuesdays

Ask anybody who's anybody, and you'll find out, I'm queen bee, when it comes to bargain shopping... And more than just bargain shopping, I think, I'm pretty good at thrifting...So for the next few weeks, I wanna introduce you, my readers, to the goodies, I've been lucky* {is there really such thing as luck} to find!

First up, we have a pair of YSL suede sandals in brown (nude for dark skinned girls!. I got them on my recent trip to Puerto Rico. We happened to drive by a Goodwill Store and I just needed to go in! I walked in and straight to the shoe section where I picked out these beauties...

Well I picked those suckers up, did one lap around the store and proceeded to check out! At check out I asked, "Cuando"? To which the woman responded, "Un peso." {My heart is beating fast, my palms are sweaty... I reach into my purse, pull out A dollar bill and slide it across the counter.} As the sales woman accepts the dollar and puts my new shoes in the bag, I am elated.

I did have to get the elastic on the strap replaced, which put the cost of the shoes up to $21, still a steal....

Happy Thrifting...

I know, I know, I know... I've been missing in action and really, without good reason! I'm here today, to say, "This is the last time!". I'll be blogging everyday about interesting things, things so interesting you'll just have to tell a friend about it {crosses fingers}.

Starting tomorrow, I'll be back in action, my long lost camera battery has made it's triumphant return to Boston and I get to pick it up tomorrow. I'm also back in effect with a new and improved camera phone!

So stay tuned, you won't want to miss anything!
